The flow of electric charge, measured in amperes, through a circuit or component.
From french ampère, the unit of measurement named for andré-marie ampère, french physicist and mathematician who studied the nature of electricity and magnetism.
- The amperage was too high and caused the circuit to overheat.
- The amperage was too low and the device wouldn't turn on.
- He measured the amperage of the current to ensure it was within safe limits.
- The amperage was the key factor in determining the power consumption of the device.
- He had to increase the amperage in order to get the desired result.
